Has anyone ever told you to put super glue on a cut? Have others told you that it is toxic and causes burns?
Both facts are true, but now we have special types of medical super glue that are non-toxic and seal cuts as well as stitches.
Medical super glue, also called surgical glue or skin glue, is mainly used in operating rooms on both people and animals to seal surgical incisions, but it has lots of potential for improving the quality of emergency medicine as well. These glues stand apart from other liquid bandage products because they start to harden instantly on contact with skin and create a strong skin-to-skin bond that holds the cut closed.
